Summary:

"Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court - but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people. 
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms - and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future - and the future of a world cleaved in two." 


Way i am waiting.... 


Lets start this out with, i was not the hugest fan of ACoTaR as everyone else, at least not with the actual story itself. Because that was just... ehe for me. I mean it was okay. The idea was pretty good. But overall? nothing new or special. I hated Feyre. I couldn't stand Tamlin. I hated the "Big finish" noticed in the summary here as "terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people". 
But i loved Maas' writing. It was beautiful and wonderful and just all the good things. 
And i loved Rhysand. 
So yeah... i really can't wait to see where this book will be taking this story, where Rhysand -one of the two characters that i actually really enjoyed in the first book!- gets a leading role. 
And i want more of Maas' wonderful writing. 

I think i am also one of the view people that really does not share how this cover turned out. I am only pleased that it at least hallway matches the first one in the way that in this one the girl/woman/thing on the cover is also half turned on the face is not completely visible. So that matches at least and makes me a bit happy. But could really are less about the rest of it. 

I only hope that Maas will make this one more fantastic then the first one, and the she keeps her world stopping writing style and maybe while she is at it, gives Feyre an actual personality? 




Have you heard of this book? do you want to read it? 
Have you read the first book in this series?
What did you think of it?
Do you also not care about the differences between the covers of the US and UK version? Or are you one of those that could scream because of it?
Let me know, lets chat :)


Write more later....

      I will have to say that while this is a great series -and the writing really does make it great- it is nothing special and if you want something different or unique, even thought it is great book -since i only have read the first one and all- it is not necessary a must. But if you love fantasy retellings, i would recommend it :)
      Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment :)
